Hello: From what you are saying, and what has ben done.I think the issue you are having ,points right to the charging system,Yes, The issue is the alt.is slightly on the weak side.If the charging system cant keep-up to demand,It will cause this type of issue (seen it before) Even if they test your battery,and it tests good,and they test the charging system and it tests good,It has to be verified when the issue is happening,Follow me!What I am saying here is it may all test good when al is good, but an alternator can mal-function at certian speeds/conditions etc.Then causing this type of issue,11.9 volts and less will cause an issue with these vehicles. Thanks Please let me know how it goes for you!

Hello sir,

I just replaced the alternator, the tech drove it for an hour...I drove it for 45 minutes and no problems....Just got into it to go to lunch and the problem came back...going to have the computer reset...will this help? is resetting the computer giving it a fresh slate...or do we have another issue other than the alternator?

please advise

sign,

tired of my chrysler

Providing the alt.that was just replaced,is not defective,(bad part) Then They need to take a strong look at the wiring/wiring connections! Thanks

took the auto to a specialist...was loosing connection...went behind steering column and fixed problem...YEAH!

 

now i have clicking noise, not when steering, when driving mostly at slower speeds when the gear shifts...had oil changed and technician thought that it may be when the oil is changed it will lubricate the lifts?? oil change, front end alignment and new tires...still clicks periodically...at random

 

happy first problem is resolved...no major problems...other than I HATE CHRYSLERS NOW...
